The man who founded NFL Films, whose groundbreaking highlight reels of the game's greatest plays and The Players earned him a spot in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, believes he and other non-players do not deserve enshrinement in the Hall. That's what "Big" Ed Sabol tells Armen Keteyian on the next 60 Minutes Sports premiering tonight, Feb. 6 at 10:00 PM, ET/PT on SHOWTIME.

60 Minutes Sports immediately follows the season finale of the Emmy-Award winning Inside the NFL (9:00 PM, ET/PT on SHOWTIME), which features NFL Films' renowned highlights and exclusive on-field audio from Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans.

The Sabol interview appears in the 60 Minutes Sports story about the Production Company he founded with his son, the late Steve Sabol that revolutionized the way television sports are produced. NFL Films was so integral to the promotion and growth of the NFL, that Sabol was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. "I didn't give a damn about the Hall of Fame," says Sabol of his 2011 honor. "I don't think that anybody that didn't play the game should be in the Hall of Fame...And you got a lot of men in there because of their politics, because they're owners, they're in the Hall of Fame," he tells Keteyian.

The 96-year-old patriarch of NFL Films thinks owners are important, just not Hall of Fame material. "What the hell did they do for football? Supply the money. Very important, but not the Hall of Fame," says Sabol.

Sabol founded NFL Films in 1960 using skills he discovered using a small movie camera he sent away for in a catalog. The WWII vet and former Ohio State athlete began filming his family's everyday life, including son Steve's football games in the mid-1950s. That led to Ed bringing his son into a ground-floor business that today is a company with 400 employees located in New Jersey.
